20221019: The Equation That Explains (Nearly) Everything!
 01:48: ... forces of nature in terms of gauge symmetries. And they succeeded. The weak interaction arises from a slightly more complicated SU(2) symmetry, while the strong ...


20220427: How the Higgs Mechanism Give Things Mass
 03:36: ... the next episode we tried the same trick to explain the weak interaction as arising from symmetries. We saw that we could invent a pair of ...
 15:06: ... gain mass and become the two W and one Z bosons of the weak interaction. The fourth boson manages to escape unscathed and massless, ...


20220316: What If Charge is NOT Fundamental?
 10:52: To fully explain weak interactions we need a second charge  this one carried by the Z boson.


20210126: Is Dark Matter Made of Particles?
 11:25: But a WIMP, with its extremely weak interaction, would more easily dodge its antimatter buddy  and so countless may have survived to this day.
 11:45: And that interaction strength is about the same as the weak interaction.


20201118: The Arrow of Time and How to Reverse It
 10:58: ... went thorugh another phase transition  a vacuum decay  then the weak interaction would fundamentally change  to become a different force with different ...


20201104: Electroweak Theory and the Origin of the Fundamental Forces
 00:57: Let’s start with the mysterious and often misunderstood weak interaction.
 02:10: Fermi was motivated by the apparent extreme short range of the interaction  and that short range is what earned it the name “weak” interaction.
 02:19: But Fermi’s model only worked at low energies, and neither it nor its successors explain why the weak interaction violates chargeparity symmetry.
 03:06: In 1957, Julian Schwinger proposed a set of force mediating gauge bosons for the weak interaction.
 03:12: Given that the weak interaction could change a neutral particle into a pair of charged particles this mediating particle must itself be charged.
 04:02: Anyway, this new gauge theory of the weak interaction seemed to be okay with parity violation, and it wasn’t only accurate at low energies.
 11:14: Well remember that I said that the weak interaction somehow seems to involve electromagnetism?


20200810: Theory of Everything Controversies: Livestream
 00:00: ... said that advice is every once in a while think a little bit about the weak interactions and then he smiled and he said that really worked for me and and i ...


20200211: Are Axions Dark Matter?
 11:08: ... all the right properties  no direction interaction with light, and only weak interactions via the other forces. And although these particles are extremely light, ...

 00:02: ... theta are the same particle which turns out to be the K on and that the weak interaction which governs this decay does not concern parity but how to test this Yi ...


20180711: Quantum Invariance & The Origin of The Standard Model
 10:12: These are, the gauge bosons, the photon for electromagnetism, the W and Z bosons for the weak interaction, and the gluon for the strong interaction.


20180704: Will A New Neutrino Change The Standard Model?
 01:00: They don't even interact via the weak interaction.
 05:46: Every neutrino we've ever observed was spotted using the weak interaction.
